Participating in group activities have never really been my thing, but this project was a great experience. I got the chance to meet individuals with different problem solving solutions than I, and the people I communicate with daily. This project helped me gain communication skills amongst others when trying to make a decision, and the process of coming to an agreement. The knowledge, skills, and abilities I demonstrated throughout the weeks have grown and boosted my confidence when partaking in a group setting. I learned that people are easily offended and it may be hard to steer away from it, but it can be done. Teamwork has always been easy for me because I offer more help than needed to my teammates. The panel discussion taught me that not everyone one wants help, but the opportunity for their opinions to be considered. Each tool I have gained from this experience will make it easier for me to engage with others in the near future in a mannerly way whether it is for a grade or not.
Learning how to work effectively in a group situation is key to success in many professions as well as in social situations. Groups vary from each other based on the individuals that make up each group, all of us belong to various groups at one time or another. The roles that we fulfill vary from group to
Initially, I had a negative view on group working because of the challenges that I had. When I was in high school, my five other friends and I used to work together in a music competition. Although we were supposed to get together to practice
If you have a very negative environment or intense environment in our classroom kids don't learn as well as they do in a positive environment. Group projects allow students to work together with their peers and talk amongst themselves as one but do it while getting the knowledge and materials they need to learn. This causes the students to be less nervous when working with other and that makes the classroom they are in a more positive setting for them. I can speak from experience and I would rather work on a project with more than one person rather
Since much of our time is spend in groups, it is helpful to work in groups because it will give an opportunity to improve their human functioning. Group work helps to develop individual skills in communication, relationship building and asserting oneself
The first benefit of working alone is that other people are not in your way. You don’t have the burden of your group members in your space. So working alone is good because you can ease through everything without going
In our futures, we are going to be working with people every day. We will be working with people, whether in the work force or community. The more an individual works in a group they become a better team member and gain knowledge by learning from others. Outside of learning the material for our class, I believe we did a lot of group to benefit us in our future group work experiences.
I was reluctant to tackle the amount of group work that was required, but I found it to be most pleasant working with my peers who were excited as I was to investigate the jail system in Dutchess county. Contrarily, I always found that doing assignments myself was always better than the alternative—group projects. I was never usually paired with individuals that had the same work ethic that I had, and often found them difficult to accomplish. However, doing this presentation with the group I was assigned with was a positive experience for me.
I always thought that working in groups meant one or two people doing all the work and the rest just goofing off. But in our group each individual had a specific task that they had to perform to make sure the group assignment got done. The group consisted of 9 people who are as followed; Christian Clark, Reilyenne Nahulu, Michel Rivera, Hunter Salavea-Timoteo, Kashalynn Vergara, Paola Guadalupe Gonzalez, Kobee Ledward, Bryje Ahia, and Jeremie Saludares. The analysis covers the importance of an interesting topic, preparation needed, roles I played, things that went well in our group, could've done better, and the two important things about group communication.
This change is important, and valuable for me because I did not used to work as a team. I preferred to work alone because I thought that working, as a team is waste time. However, I was wrong, and I was missing out on the benefits of teamwork, such as active learning, key critical thinking, communication, and decision-making skills. All those factors are essential for the development of student learning. Now everything changed, I like to work in a group because I can share my ideas, and discuss one subject about it. In addition, teamwork has brought me many benefits in my life as a student. One of that benefits is I am more responsible. For instance, if I have to research one subject, I have to read many books or find the right information on the Internet, and deliver my investigation on time to discuss the information as
Professors often make students work in groups , in additional to individual class work. In 5-10 sentences, write what you believe to be the advantages and/or disadvantages of working in groups in the classroom setting, and what lessons you may learn from those experiences that could apply later in

“Group work is a form of voluntary association of members benefiting from cooperative learning that enhances the total output of the activity than when done individually”.
This about how to work with groups and other team members, most of the time it is hard to do but with our jobs nowadays we have to do what we have to do. I like working with others for the most part, especially when they are motivated in getting the job done in a timely manner. Then we have some that just don’t want to help but want everybody else to do their work for them.
I used to believe that I did not perform very well in groups. I am an observer who likes to learn alone. I thought I learned best when I worked on my own. Even though I always knew group work had many positive values, I was more comfortable with the lecture-based approach and resisted group work merely because it involved change, not because it had a collaborative learning approach. However, during the learning community project, I came to realize that I learn more effectively when I work in groups. Working in a group was like an adventure for me; there were both exciting and challenging times while preparing for the learning community project.
